If you weren’t already aware of my admiration for Juffage, then here are a few examples of why he is awesome: When is comes to sampling and “editing the fuck out of arpeggio synthesizers” he knows what he is doing, which makes for an amazing and unforgettable performance. In 2010, he performed at the University of Leeds in which he used 12 speakers, utilising a technique similar to sampling called ‘granular synthesis’ (erratically distributing the sound throughout the audience). Later that year, he collaborated with an architect to create a multichannel sound object, which involved looping tracks, distorting them and then playing them through cassette tapes, causing them to overlap and produce completely original sounds every time. Juffage’s performances are a wonderful mix of ambient and experimental as he effortlessly live loops an obscene amount of tracks over one another and still has time to joke around with the crowd. In a bold yet innovative move, Juffage will be presenting his brand new material for one night only on 26th April 2013. This will be your only opportunity to hear these songs performed live – and trust me, seeing him live is whole different experience. Juffage is a true performer. He gets the crowd involved, so of course you will be surrounded by numerous loudspeakers, amps and guitars which will engulf you, making you part of the concert and no longer just an observer. What makes this one-off concert in April even more astounding is the venue. Left Bank Leeds, a mere 10 minutes’ drive from Leeds city centre, used to be St.Margaret of Antioch’s Church, a Grade II listed building which was refurbished by the Heritage Lottery and is now a spacious, breathtaking venue, primarily used for music, art and creative performances. The acoustics generated by this majestic building are unlike any other gig venue. In an unusual turn of events, Juffage will be performing alongside esteemed musicians and friends of his, Katie Harkin (Sky Larkin and Wild Beasts), and Tom Evans (Vessels). To top it all off, the coolest venue in West Yorkshire [bold statement – Ed], The Brudenell Social Club are assisting promotion of this special one-off performance. I think I’ve used up a H&H‘s maximum capacity of positive adjectives but please do check out Facebook for the event.
